“A good one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2010

In other reviews I read that this was an older but very good motel. We just stayed here two nights and I can add to that, that the motel had been modernised without losing any of its qualities. The outside is now in mexican red and blue color. Looks good. The people who manage the motel are just great. They are completely focussed on you having a good stay. The pool is nice, and the room we had (221) was just one of the best we had in the US (our fifth trip). Very comfortable en very clean. Breakfast is OK. When we are again in Albuquerque we will definitely stay here again.

We were supposed to just stay one night, at the beginning of our trip, but ended up staying another two at the end! Kays hospitality, the cleanliness and decor of the rooms make this motel a definite cut above the rest. Its very reasonably priced and we very much hope to visit again. It really added to the enjoyment of our trip

I stayed at the Sandia Peak Inn based on reviews on tripadvisor and they were accurate. Kay, the owner, greets you and makes sure you are well cared for. My room was extremely clean, the bed very comfortable and I'm very glad I chose the Sandia Peak for my stay. Kay is happy to honor the hotel discount coupon prices, so the Sandia Peak is a great value. If you're not sure where to eat -- ask Kay and she'll have great suggestions. All in all a wonderful stay and I will stop here again when passing through Albuquerque.

This hotel is the best ever. The owners made us feel like family. They go out of their way to be nice and do all they can to make our stay enjoyable.

My wife and I spent two days in Albuquerque last July and stayed at Sandia Peak Inn Motel both days. The owner is pleasant and will go out of her way to help as will her college bound son home for the summer and helping out. The facility is very well maintained; rooms are spacious and clean with good decor. There is an indoor swimming pool that we didn't take advantage of but this looked well tended. The continental breakfast was worth not looking for a breakfast place off site. Overall, good value for reasonable price. By the way, this is my second posting since the first is no where to be seen- what happened TripAdvisor?

My husband & I were just traveling through Albuquerque & stayed here for just one night. A very clean room & a comfortable clean bed are a must for us. This motel provided both. Best nights sleep on our whole trip. 5 stars! The heating/AC unit was whisper quiet. Bathroom was very clean. Nice towels. Liked having a microwave & refrigerator in the room. Staff was very pleasant. Breakfast was just a standard continental style; no big wow. We would definitely stay here again, & will recommend SANDIA PEAK INN to our friends !

We picked this place because of the reviews here. We've stayed at Monterey Non-Smokers Hotel in the past, but they don't have king-size beds. Both properties are similar...clean and well run.

Sandia Peak is a 2 story property with an indoor pool. There was a mix-up with our reservation, so we got a king suite for $57.90 + tax! The room was large, and there were plenty of surfaces for our stuff. Everything was very clean. They provide a couple small packets of shampoo and some soap...no luxurious toiletries, but that's okay. The shower water pressure was fine, and the towels were soft and large (btw, you only get two...ask if you need more). Shower and toilet were separate from sink area, and the shower area has a sunlamp for warmth.

We didn't hear road noise from Room 103, but the heater does indeed crank up loudly when it cycles on. The bed was pretty firm.

Was glad to see some wheat bread at breakfast (I could've used some peanut butter for protein). There were bananas and apples, along with the donuts and cereal. My husband said the coffee was good, but I didn't see any makings for tea. Kay said they would soon be getting a wafflemaker. Note: the "Cheerios" type cereal is already sweetened, you don't need to add more sugar!

We'd definitely stay here again. Kay aims to please and she does a nice job!
